I am a Person-Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I have over 15 years’ experience of working with adults aged 18 and over.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions I am offering daytime/early evening appointments using video (via Zoom) or telephone between Monday and Thursday. I do not offer weekend appointments.
I offer a professional, confidential and supportive setting to enable you to explore issues and express your feelings in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
Whilst I am true to my chosen modality of counselling, I also integrate different ways of working to suit the individuals that I work with, including using art therapy skills, where appropriate.
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I have my own Professional Indemnity Insurance.
I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, which is a successful treatment for Trauma and is different to my counselling work. Please contact me to discuss your requirements if you are considering EMDR.

As a Counsellor/Psychotherapist it is essential to continue my own personal and professional development to aid my practice and I do this by attending workshops and courses for a range of issues which include: bereavement, anger issues, relationship difficulties, trauma, depression and anxiety.
I am also on the Private Practice Register and am recognised by the following Private Healthcare Insurance Providers:
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
